Waukon girls basketball team handles Wapsie Valley, 54-33; Battles with other single-loss NEIC teams looming this week

The Waukon girls basketball team ended up being able to play only one of its two scheduled games this past week, a Friday, January 18 game at Oelwein having to be postponed due to winter weather and ending up being rescheduled for Saturday, February 2.

Being able to give back to the program where it all started ...

Waukon High School 2014 graduates Parker Hesse and Marcus Weymiller provided a “full circle” moment when they recently made the decision to designate proceeds from the sale of t-shirts (worn and displayed at far left in the above photo) by the Waukon High School Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter in honor of the former Waukon football teammates’ September 15 collegiate match-up in their final seasons with the Iowa Hawkeye and UNI Panther football teams, respectively. The two were tasked by Waukon High School FBLA Advisor Joan Schwartz with the decision of where the $2,000 raised by the sale of 378 of the t-shirts would be donated, with the two deciding upon the Waukon Youth Sports Foundation (YSF) football program, the tackle football program offered for fifth and sixth grade students in the Allamakee Community School District.
